2019-2020 Donruss Optics Basketball

2019-2020 Donruss Optics Basketball:  Optic is not a brand I'd normally pick up but with basketball cards being what they are I grabbed this back when these were still in the wild.  I love this Steph Cury blue velocity parallel.  It works perfect with the Warriors colors.  
The basic design isn't bad.  My issue with Optic/Chrome/shiny cards is they just aren't for me.  I'm not a fan of the shiny look or the thickness arc of the card.  But again as a basic design this is a good one.
Been a few years since I purchased optic.  Seem to be more inserts this time around.  Not a bad insert here with Kyrie Irving in his Brooklyn uni.
Great pull in this pack.  Can't wait to see these guys back on the court.
I won't revisit these cards though if you find any basketball in the wild right now it'd be hard to pass up.  Still this was a fun pack with some great players including one of my faves Damion Lillard.

15 – Total Cards
3 – Blue Velocity Parallels
1 – Rated Rookie
1 – Fantasy Stars
1 – Express Lane



  1. The inserts look really cool. I haven't found a single ounce of optic here. My father bought two blasters and pulled a silver Morant in each one.

    1. Silver Morants? sweet pull. I have quite a few packs I've had for a while but haven't had a chance to post. Still no new basketball on our shelves outside of the randome Mosaic I found two weeks ago.

  2. This is a brand that I don't really care for either, the shine or chrome effect that they use for these looks off, it would be nice if they would just stick with the basic Donruss brand and leave the shiny for Prizm.

  3. Sweet Steph! You're right... the color matches up perfectly with the team colors.

    1. I love when those matchup. A green parallel would have been "meh" at best. :)
